, secretary panetta made it clear he will see it through this, sort of that one year or so he served. there is talk that secretary clinton's going to hang it up, and it's been remarkable how many people have stayed in the administration, traditionally, you would have found more people leaveing, but there's going to be a lot the turn over. on the hill, jill nelson is leaving, joe lieberman, todd akin who lost his race who will be leaving, roscoe bartlett who is going to be leaving. norm dixon and others. what the environment we look into congestionly? who will replace whom? and who will we see on the administration. >> i think the most important change on the hill in terms of the defense committee is that there were people from the vietnam generation who were like giants, people who could really move the chamber, like jack murtha, other victim, even john mccain who is timing out on the senate arms services committee. they are gradually being traded away, and replaced by people who may feel as strongly, but not as vocal and not as forceful. >> not as powerful either, and so they are no
really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
of the attacks in benghazi. defense secretary leon panetta made it clear he is ready for retirement. senator john kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops an
this or that is negligent, it is irresponsible, and god forbid if we have that major pearl harbor that secretary panetta referred to. so i urge my colleagues to pass this bill. i thank the chair for the extra extra time. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from georgia. mr. chambliss: senator grassley who is next has been kind enough to give me 30 to that 45 seconds. i appreciate that. mr. president, july and august when the cosponsors of both the underlying bill, the lieberman-collins bill and the secure i.t. bill which i am a cosponsor of plet meth regularly and i was hopeful we could resolve the significant differences between these two bills. unfortunately, we did not reach an agreement even though we had been promised an open amendment process on this underlying billing bill, the majority leader has once again filled the tree and filed for cloture. i voted against cloture in august and, unfortunately, nothing has changed since then. so i'm compelled to do the same thing today. we all understand the serious threat that is facing our country from cyber atta

there. >> you will get a swing at that. let me push back on this, a.b. leon panetta, at a news conference at pentagon several week ago said we knew about this. we had forces in the area. but the decision of general dempsey, head of joint chief, myself, general ham was that we coulden in the the time involved there move forces to the area. >> there have been conflicting accounts on what happened and whether or not the request was made, whether it was turned down. he says today for the first time my orders were. i don't know that he said he was doing that night and what transpired in those seven hours. in terms of what was -- >> we did know he met because they were already there for a meeting. meeting with top officials. >> but he has not explained how the hours unfolded. what you see right now is a focus on capitol hill on david petraeus. they are hoping for a lot of clarification from his testimony. i think what you also see because, you know, there was no reporter asking today could you walk up through the seven hours on september 11? you will see a lot of heat on hillary clin
't you send out the secretary of state or the cia director or panetta or somebody who did know. he is defending the miss terrorist in distress. they look positively feminist in comparison the patronizing attack on the two senators who would effect the girl which was intended in his tone. this is all usual if you attack pride it will strike you on that. it was clearly defensive it was also a stone wall. after all what she said was absolutely completely misleading. >>> at the same news conference fox's ed henry asked the president to address the families of the americans killed in that attack about whether he issued any orders in the lives. we will play you a response to that lart in the show. >> right now it is time for the weather update with janice dean. janice keeping an eye on the storm front again that could hit around thanksgiving janice. i know you are worried about this one but there might be good news on the horizon. we need good news. i know we have a busy travel week next week. let's talk about what's happening right now and what could happen over the weekend. we have som
of every second term. hillary clinton is going someplace else, leon panetta moving on, treasury secretary, timothy geithner, i think 55 democrats, two independents, going with the democratic caucus. is that enough to make sure susan rice is nominated by the president, u.n. ambassador to be secretary of state, is that enough to make sure she's confirmed. >> i would be surprised if he nominated susan rice. although she probably would be confirmed, hearings would be a misery, a place where we would see again and again that she was the mouthpiece for a false story about what happened in benghazi. does the administration want to be held hostage to susan rice's overstatements of the case on tv multiple, multiple times. >> i don't know if you have inside information, everything i hear the president wants her to be the next secretary of state. >> she would be a strong nominee, excellent for this job. and if republicans want to go down the road of benghazi making it a political issue, we saw it play out in the campaign, not much success for them, it would be a strategic error to play politics with
ayotte. and what's going on with the generals? leon panetta orders ethics review. the fbi agent, he's the guy who brought down the millennium bomber. >>> taking out the military leader of hamas and fire from the gaza strip. >> israel will continue to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people. >> we'll talk to michael oren, israel's ambassador to the united states. >>> and president obama at this hour in staten island to hear from storm victims. >>> plus, say cheese. new members of congress pose for their class photo. perhaps the last time they'll look this happy. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. as the nation learns about the key players and the controversy surrounding general david patreaus, successor at the cia on capitol hill briefing members of the house intelligence committee today. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cillizza managing editor of postpolitics.com, and kelly o'donnell and correspondent pete williams. pete, first to you. talk first about what is going on in the investigation? the fbi agent who was first only known as the person w
be embarrassing. defense secretary leon panetta was asked about allen today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at i.s.a.f. in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are, and we will. >> reporter: the e-mails between allen and kelly were discovered by the f.b.i. in the course of an investigation that uncovered the affair between david petraeus and paula broadwell. a search of broadwell's computer files turned up intimate e-mails with petraeus, and also revealed she may have mishandled some classified information that she'd collected for her book. but law enforcement officials say the investigation never uncovered a threat to national security. an f.b.i. director robert mueller, told congressional intelligence committee leaders today that was the primary reason they were not briefed on the investigation. the white house wasn't told until after the election. the president said
this morning, while on se rip in thailand, defense secretary leon panetta says he doesn't see the scandal wi >> i am not aware of any others his could be involved in this issue at the present time. >> r intellig enb muller briefed intelligence eaders, saying that broadwell, researching a book on petraeus, may have mishandled classified information. also on wednesday, broadwell's susp security clearances were canceled and macdill air force base in tampa revoked jill kelley's access to the base. looking into the e-mails kelley exchanged with general allen. officials officials say they contain be nothing of an explicit sexual nature but add the e-mails, if l naturelic, would be embarrassing. for his part, allen has privately denied any wrongdoing pokenas not spoken publicly. his attorney did release a ntatement on his behalf saying that he was fully cooperating he was with the investigations and that so the extent there are questions about certain communications by general allen, he shares a desire to resolve uestions stions as completely snd quickly as possible. >> can you explain what ibppen
defense secretary leon panetta said he doesn't see the scandal widening. >> i'm not aware of any others that could be involved in this issue at the present time. >> reporter: on capitol hill wednesday fbi director robert mueller briefed congressional intelligence leaders saying the fbi did find that broadwell who had been researching a book on petraeus may have mishandled classified information. also on wednesday the army suspended broadwell security clearances and the air force base rejected kelley's access to the base. officials have said emails between kelley and allen contain nothing of a sexual nature but could be embarrassing. allen has denied any wrongdoing and has not spoken publicly but his attorney did release a statement on his behalf saying he was fully cooperating with the investigations and to the kent there's certain questions on communication with general allen he plans to resolve those questions as quickly as possible. in an interview with charlie rose in washington on wednesday night the head of u.s. special operations, maintained high praise for his colleagues. >> my
know this. that we're likely to call leon panetta and general hamm and others in the armed services committee and i believe that the foreign relations committee would want to hear from secretary clinton and all those who are responsible for consulate security. the problem is that the thee committees will not be able to hear what the other groups are saying. i'd like to ask general petraeus t some questions and i'm sure there are people on the intel committee that would like to hear what the department of defense would like to say about their handling of the attack and why were there so many requests for additional security denied and the august 15th cable back to washington where chris stevens is telling secretary clinton, we've identified ten al-qaeda militia groups in benghazi. two of the ten we suspect were involved in the attack and close to the final paragraph, if there is a coordinated attack against the consulate, we cannot defend it. so four americans are dead. first ambassador is killed. i think this is a symptom of a greater problem in the mideast, quite frankly. for those
shows. leon panetta spoke to a senate armed services committee group. told them it had nothing to do with the video. it was terrorism. he mentioned al-qaeda by name. the day before she goes out there. general petraeus says something different to the house. they have shown shiny things all over the place. >> bob: only one at that point. >> the director of national intelligence presented that. that is what they said. >> bob: bob is right. ill's not her fault. i see nothing, i hear nothing. you just tell me what to say. so that leads to the conclusion, where did the story come from? the original question that you love, who pushed the video. this is the one strand to follow through the story and unral the strange sweater. >> eric: the c.i.a. said -- sorry, casey. the c.i.a. in their timeline, in their timeline they put it together and put it out on september 12, 4:30 a.m. they name al-qaeda. name ansar al-sharia attacked our consulate. c.i.a. has a timeline and al-qaeda there and terrorism there. petraeus out there saying it's the video. pensacolpanetta is saying it's e video. this is te
.n. ambassador, why are you putting me out there versus the secretary of state or the cia or even leon panetta. >> does this tell you it is cover-up or conspiracy? are we talking about a major cover-up that we are defeating al qaeda or simply just pretty poor performance by all of the people up the line in dealing with this attack? >> well, it is why we need to get to the bottom of all of the questions that i identified earlier and it is one of two thingsb and you have said it, it is either blatant incompetence or misleading the american peop people. so i would like to know the facts so that we will know exactly what happened and most of all make sure it does not happen again. we had four brave americans murdered, and frankly, their families deserve answers, and the american people deserve answer answers on this to make sure that we get to the bottom of it and it does not happen again. >> thank you so much indeed for joining me. >> thank you, piers. >>> i want to bring back general mark kimmon who is secretary of state and been with david petraeus for 25 years. general, welcome back. one thing
afternoon of september 11th when defense secretary panetta was probably here in the building and general dempsey the chairman of the joint chiefs were here they were not told about what was happening at the state department for 50 minutes. and then it took the military another 20 hours to send special operators to the base. they never made it to libya. 20 hours. >> bill: looks like the state department, again, is the one that didn't do what they was supposed to do. but, again, the president is not going to offer anything. until they -- look, what they want to do is set it up. if they need a straw man to blame it on, they will find one. that's what they're doing now. jennifer, keep us posted. we appreciate it very much. plenty more aheads the factor moves along this evening. dennis miller will have thoughts on the press conference today. there is a new chick-fil-a story he wants to mention. upcoming, the man who provides the voice of elmo accused of a heinous crime but it didn't happen. juliet huddy on the case and we hope you stay tuned to those reports. impact segment tonight. as you ma
or leon panetta or even barack obama. these are tectonic plates that are moving in the middle east. and the idea that who the president decides to appoint as secretary of state is going to make a material difference in these things, no. >> does anyone have, do you think, does anyone have any real sense of where egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part
as a spontaneous, the benghazi killings as a spontaneous reaction. the department of defense leon panetta was saying it was terrorism. the very same -- >> bob: petraeus never said -- he didn't change his story. he never said it wasn't a terrorist attack. he did not. >> eric: said it was reaction to the movie. >> dana: this would be a fun experiment. if you found somebody living under a rock or on mars or listening to the news and said i want you to sift through the stories, see the conclusion. it's what is our government doing to protect the diplomatic personnel. we have a responseability to do that. >> greg: a journalist would be good at doing that. this is a blown opportunity for journalist to become the next -- >> bob: four days after it took place. >> dana: they are the ones who said -- what they should have done and they didn't is they created the problem. not us. >> bob: talk about the conflicting information. it says in here on the briefing, there was strong ties to al-qaeda. not been one shred of evidence. >> dana: there is. >> bob: no, by the name al-qaeda. >> eric: president oba
and before that as centcom commander. he brought a different style to the cia than leon panetta. he was hard at work, bringing enormous strategic sense to understanding dangerous parts of the world. the cia is a big, positive contributor to the intelligence community which operates a lot better since we reformed it in 2004 and created a joint command across 16 agencies. the cia is indispensable in the effort to prevent terror attacks on our country. >> you once said, quoting you, i live and breathe security 24/7, if they come and ask you to be director of the cia, you will have that opportunity to live and breathe security 24/7. >> i live and breathe at the wilson center, and as the external board if his successor keeps me on. i think it is a critical time for our country. we need to talk about organizing the opposition in syria which if it happens will be a great contribution of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we will have opportunities to talk about syria and other issues down the road. thanks for coming in. >>> did the fbi end up investigating something that amounted to nothing? up
do know this, that we're likely to call leon panetta and general ham and others in the armed services committee and i believe the foreign relations committee would want to hear from secretary clinton and all those who were responsible for consulate security. the problem is, that the three committees will not be able to hear what the other groups are saying. >> joining me live is democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania, member of the senate foreign relations committee, also chairman of the congress's joint economic committee. sir, good it to have you here. we say congratulations about your re-election but we have to dig down deep on this big story because right now, we have senator graham, we have senator mccain, calling for a select committee. they feel like they are not getting the answers they need and won't get the answers they need otherwise. what is your reaction to that? >> well, there's no question whatever format it takes we need to get answers to a lot of questions. some of that process has begun. we had a briefing yesterday in the foreign relations committee which i tho
. >> and overnight in australia, secretary panetta and clinton urging the public not to rush to judgment on general allen, who has been nominated to be the supreme allied commander at nato. >> no one should leap to conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. at isaf. he has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. >> general allen is a distinguished commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >>> and more on jill kelley, friendly with both generals. she and her twin sister did have a brief stint on reality tv appearing on the food network nearly a decade ago. >> it's nice to exploit their weakness which is their ego. >> plus, nancy pelosi deciding to go for another term as democratic leader. her big announcement didn't go exactly as planned. >> said yesterday we did not have the majority but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. >> we were hoping to. we have our own gavel. hammer. >> we have something more important. we have unity. >> and they certainly have woman power in that photo op. andrea mitchell
tomorrow and likely the senate intelligence committee as well. now the defense secretary leon panetta came out ordering an investigation of legal and ethical issues among military leaders. the president giving his first remarks yesterday on the scandal that prompted the president to resign. >> we're safer because of the work that dpaifd petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on. and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> the president also took leading republicans to task for attacks on the ambassador susan rice and comments she made just days after the deaths of four americans in benghazi. twaks you heard live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor te
. secretary clinton has said she is going to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration talks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. host: "the wall street journal" says this -- margaret talev, who replaces let's start with hillary clinton? guest: it is a great question. i think the conventional wisdom is right in that there are two candidates
a crimp in any plans to exit immediately. with leon panetta refusing to indicate whether he will leave or stay put, the president will have to fill the pentagon pose a top civilian job. we are looking at the future of the obama cabinet as well as other positions like the director of the cia. david joins us from wisconsin. we are talking about the national security team. caller: i am a veteran, 67 years old. i do not see a national security team. president obama is commander in chief. he sat there and watched four guys get killed on tv and not even an effort was made to rescue them. that is pretty disgusting. there was no national security. that is basically my opinion. host: what do you want to see happen now? caller: they should have an investigation and get to the bottom of it. why all the lies. host: is that congress's role? should they have an outside body? caller: it is congress's role as long as they have a bipartisan committee. it is interesting that a lot of the politicians are retiring and leaving. i think congress should set up a committee to check it out. host: from the asso
questions. there will be people in the intel committee that will not be able to ask secretary panetta, general ha*pl and others about the -- general hamm and others about the d.o.d. piece. the best thing for the senate to do, i think, is to have a bipartisan select committee where you combine the resources of all three of the committees who have jurisdiction over different pieces and create a professional approach to solving the problem. it will be run by our democratic colleagues because they're in charge of the body. it should be. there have been times in the past, iran-contra and other examples of where committees combine their resources to make sure that they full lip understand what was being said. if you stovepipe this and one committee goes one way and the other committee goes another way we're not going to get the complete picture of what happened in benghazi. that's what we're asking, is that the majority leader and minority leader create a select committee of the three kw-ts that have primary -- committees that have primary jurisdiction over each moving part so we can get to
east is a mess. look in iran the centrifuges are still spinning. secretary panetta, and secretary clinton are in asia right now. that pivot, are we pivoting away from the challenges and our interests in the middle east, which is really a mess. jon: you worry we are leaving the israelis high and dry on this one? >> it could be. i don't know exactly what is going on with the administration. they have mad said some of the right things in sue mort of supporting israel. we are reaping the fruits of our labors in the middle east. and our policies in the middle east has been a real failure. if we are shipping through the pacific where are we going to have the planes and tanks and things for places like the middle east where we may need them. jon: that is a conversation for next time. >> that's right. jon: thank you. jenna: a fox business alert. take a look at the dow today as we put the numbers up on the jean for. this comes as we get the weekly jobless numbers, which are at the highest level in 18 months. the number of americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits is now at 439,
the possibility that senator john kerry could be nominated to replace, to succeed leon panetta as secretary of defense. >> i think that's true. they certainly weren't falling over themselves saying we would vote to approve john kerry if nominated, but they didn't have any kind of aversion to him either. he's one of the club here in terms of the senate club. but back to this whole question of susan rice, i think as i mentioned before, i was the one who provoked senator graham and senator mccain into talking about susan rice because the question that i asked was something i've been hearing from democrats, which is this, why are you so opposed to susan rice after she made some potentially incorrect or what now seemed to be incorrect statements publicly when they supported condoleezza rice back in the bush years for secretary of state after she clearly made incorrect public statements about weapons of mass destruction in iraq. and that's what provide voloked whole discussion. it comes to a question, it seems to me, certainly they're angry and these republican senators are calling for a select c
